The WWE Championship match at Clash of Champions 2020 could now be an Ambulance Match but there’s certain if and buts are present considering the set of incidents transpired on this week’s Raw.
The second last show before Clash Of Champions 2020 opened with WWE Champion Drew McIntyre cutting a promo on Randy Orton, whom he attacked last week with three Claymore Kicks. Orton wasn’t there to sell the beatdown as he’s now in the hospital recovering from the beatdown.
Clash of Champions 2020: WWE Championship Match Changed After Raw?
Drew McIntyre proposed that they should be wrestling in an Ambulance Match at Clash of Champions 2020 as both Superstars have taken rides with the vehicle over the past few weeks to the hospital. The Ambulance Match stipulation was then added to the title bout but there’s uncertainty around the match.
WWE Producer Adam Pearce interrupted McIntyre’s promo and disclosed that Drew may have to defend against his good friend Keith Lee at Clash of Champions 2020. Pearce informed that Orton is dealing with some serious injury. If the current challenger Orton is unable to get medically cleared in time for his scheduled title match then McIntyre will have to face Lee. There was an added condition though as Lee had to defeat McIntyre in last night’s non-title main event.
That concerned main event ended in a No Contest as the RETRIBUTION faction attacked Lee and McIntyre during the match. The Hurt Business ran down to make the save as Lee and McIntyre leaped off the ring laying out a pile of superstars all around the ring. The show ended with bodies lying everywhere around the ring whereas Lee and McIntyre shared some tensed moments.
At this point, it’s unclear whether the Clash Of Champions 2020 title bout could further be changed involving Keith Lee. For now, Orton vs McIntyre lineup is intact, going by WWE’s official website.
